The Rokin hotel is in a good position, a 10 Min walk from Central station and with Tram stops right outside the front of the hotel, although most of Amsterdam is walkable. We booked 3 rooms for our stay as we were a group of six. We did not get 3 rooms together although this was understandable as the hotel was busy and we checked in at different times. One of us had room 1 which was in the basement with a window right by the steps in to the hotel on the street and were kept awake most of the night by people passing in the street and coming back to the hotel. I would recommend avoiding room 1 for this reason. The other 2 rooms were at the back of the hotel on an upper floor which was much quieter but unfortunately the hotel seemed to be having problems with heating and both rooms were very cold all weekend until Monday morning when we were checking out when the radiators kicked into life.
Breakfast is good and the staff on reception helpful.
In the scheme of things Rokin is relatively cheap as Central Amsterdam hotels go and apart from the heating problem and Room 1 to be avoided if you just want a cheapish clean hotel it is probably worth considering.
The Tara Irish bar a few doors up serves great food and drink.
Bar Italia a few doors up is overpriced, has slow poor service and food portions are tiny. One to be avoided unless you like pretentious nouveaux cuisine, and are not very hungry.
